Zenfolio | Steven Silverman Nature Photography | About
Thank you for visiting my site. My interest in photography peaked in the mid 1970's when I enrolled in high school photography classes. We worked entirely in black & white and learned the basics of image capture and darkroom processing. In college I continued my photographic studies with course work in composition and macro photography.

As I joined the workforce I had little time to enjoy photography and it fell to the wayside for many years. I still loved to snap away on vacations or special occations but it was far from the artistic work of my past.

Several years ago while attending an antique show with LeeAnna, we ran into a gentelman selling fine art photographs from one of the booths. We were both moved by the quality of his images. The composition, color and crispness of his work was amazing and inspired me to once again pick up a camera.

Since that fateful day I have engrossed myself in classes, workshops, and literature to perfect my craft. As a photgrapher it is my philosophy to capture the best possible images in camera.
